Let's talk about "mystery meat" FPPs...

I don't mean to pick on BiggerJ, but their recent FPP exemplifies one of my MeFi pet peeves: posts which try to be cute by withholding context, thus forcing readers to follow the links to find out what the post is about. [more inside]

Should contextless YouTube posts be deleted?

YouTubeFilter. I'm not against YouTube links, but is context too much to ask for? Why not a policy to abolish stand-alone YouTube links without an associative frame?

Non-obvious links in posts

what? posts around here have often had lots of extra links about a topic, but is it too much to ask that the text of a post at least make sense? Personally, I'd like to get a clear idea of what I'm clicking on (even if it doesn’t elucidate the full scope) in mefi posts.

Vague links vaguely annoying

It's kind of anoying when people link to things without any description of what's actually behind the link. That's sort of like "Click here", which is also annoying.

It would be nice if more people described the site/article/whatever they were linking to withen within the link text or the body of the post, or at least did a title="" attribute on the tag. Would save some time finding the interesting stuff, especially on those high-volume days.
